OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (AP) — Police say a man is in custody after he allegedly tried to choke a 4-month-old baby he didn’t know at a Kansas City-area Walmart.

Overland Park police say the man walked up to a woman who was in a checkout lane early Wednesday and began choking her baby. The woman screamed and the man stopped.

Police say people in the store helped the woman and held the man until officers arrived. The baby was not injured.

Investigators say the man possibly was under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
